This morning, like most mornings, I was in a rush trying to get out the door within 10 minutes, and I needed to make myself a lunch. Bringing my lunch to work keeps me on track with my eating habits and saves so much money in comparison to buying food during my lunch time. This is what I threw together in less than 10 minutes.
Sandwich: 2 slices of Milton’s bread. I love this bread, it only has 80 calories per slice and 5g protein per slice. 1 serving (5 slices) of Tofurky Deli Slices adds another 15g protein. Some Daiya cheese and vegenaise for extra yumminess and some leafy greens. This sandwich is hearty and kept me full. Took less than 5 minutes to make.
Smoothie: 2 cups of leafy greens, frozen banana, 1C frozen berries, a scoop of protein powder and a splash of non-dairy milk. This smoothie was so simple and quick to make and I took gulps of it throughout my workday to keep hunger away. Less than 5 minutes to blend together in my nutribullet.
Clif Bar. I grabbed this for it’s convenience, but I’ve been limiting the amounts of packaged food I eat. This bar is healthier than some other options out there, but it’s still something I try keep to a minimum. It has 5g of protein along with some healthy fats and required no preparation on my part.
This was my delicious and quick meal that I brought to work that prevented me from getting hungry. I stayed on track to meet my fitness goals and I saved money andddd I made it to work on time. Woohoo!
